This is a very difficult review to write, as the property and owner-host is great in some areas and lacking in others...
The property: should be great in summer when one can use the pool and the stunning garden. The immediate surrounds is well kept, but outside of that area, the long grass ect doesn't give a great first impression.
The rooms: We stayed in the Blue Room. The bathroom (with seperate toilet) is HUGE, and the underfloor heating a treat and very welcome. Also great bathroom amenities. BUT: the broken tiles/ spa bath pump isn't good, and the cob webs in the toilet cubicle was shocking (also saw cob webs on top of the bedroom cupboard). At a first glance it looks clean, but on closer inspection, it is disturbing. Also, lots of dirt/dust inside the sleeper coach. The "kitchen cupboard" in the bedroom is very well equipped and a great idea. Also lots of storage space in the huge room, with aircon and lots of sports channels to watch.
Biggest let down was that I specifically asked for TWIN BEDS, and ended up with a King bed - not great if you are not staying with a partner. (Therefor we explored the sleeper coach as a possible second bed and was put off that idea by the dust/dirt inside).
The owner-host is very nice and accomodating and served a great breakfast, but isn't always on the premise either (could inconvenience some people if and when they need something).
Will we stay again? Doubt it, as some other places does have smaller, but cleaner rooms which offer beter value for money and TWIN BEDS!
Whilst it is nice to be located right on the R44 that leads to...nearly everywhere, getting on and of this R44 is also a bit of a hassle as that road is very busy at times, with fast moving traffic.
